 A little bit about me: I am a freshman at Webster Groves High School, where I participate in the Concert Coir, and the One-Act festival (the 27th and 29th, if you're interested) as a writer, director, and actor. I like taking long walks on the beach, drinking (virgin) piña coladas, and getting stuck in the rain.

Heather is making her theatrical debut as Truth in Brother Lies, Sister Truth. She attends Oakville High School as a sophomore. Heather first discovered her love for theatre when she started quoting Disney movies at age four. From there on out, she was determined to get her name in lights. Most of her time is spent in the dance rooms of the Movement Arts Center (MAC). Heather started dancing when she was three-years-old, and recently began to compete.



Alyssa Ward recently graduated from Saint Louis University with a BA in French and Theatre and she is currently working towards an MA in French. She is thrilled to be making her debut with Panther Productions as a fly and other creatures! Other recent productions include Much Ado About Nothing and Almost, Maine at Saint Louis University. Next, she will be seen in the world premier of Neil Labute One Acts with Saint Louis Actor's Studio.

In early 2008 Hakeem Hill was enrolled at the Southwestern Illinois College, at times participating in campus talent shows and karaoke contest he celebrated a recent victory finally winning first place in 2009 claimed to make him look harder and focus on his future in music. Hakeem Hill released his first adult solo Album "Systematic Music" collaborating with song writers such as Leslie Kaster and Khristian Greenlee (Kyro), mixing such genres as Pop, R&B, Jazz, Electro Rock. It was released on iTunes and other online stores.  

Since an early age Cara Van Leuven has been dancing the roles most sought out by those in her profession. Beginning with Swan Lake at the tender age of five, Ms. Van Leuven has emerged with the emotionality of her dance and her commitment to every performance. Often referred to by her peers as "technically daring" and "flawlessly precise" she surprises with her ability to inhabit every role comfortably and completely. See Natalie Portman in "Black Swan," a film inspired by Ms. Van Leuven's own life.

This is Sakari’s first time on stage. She always wanted to be an actress at a very young age but never knew where to start. Throughout the years, growing up, she did a lot of dancing in middle school and high school and she always wanted to join the drama club but work always took priority. She’s excited to be finally doing theatrical work and being a part of Brother Lies, Sister Truth.
